Since the only part of the loom that isn't protected by fuses is the starter circuit, it may be that the wiring has been mucked about with at some stage. For a cable to overheat that badly you need two faults: an excessive load and either a wrongly-rated fuse or it to be connected without a fuse at all.


As overheating may well have damaged adjacent wiring, I'd recommend getting a complete loom from a breaker.


The stuck caps-lock key is probably a separate fault.

After you bump start it, is it only the headlight that stops it? If the other electrics work ok then I'd  work from the headlight backs wards. Also is it side light dip and main beam? Does the pass / flash button also stop it?
Good luck
Andy

i have fixed the starting problem now the wires where burnt for the handlebars the start button and cutoff switch fixed them but i still have the headlight problem and yes took the fuses out and some idiot had wired up a piece of wire to bypass the first fuse the ignition one
so thanks for the help but does any one have a clue what the head light could be its working on full beam now no side lights or rear lights i have brake lights but nothing else

thank you
